We may also use your images and/or videos in the following ways:
- On our website for promotion and advertising purposes

Our website is designed to actively collect information from you and enables you to communicate with us via email and/or feedback forms, which may be used on our website from time to time.
Some of the information you submit to us may constitute ‘personally identifiable information’. Identifiable information is information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and so on. For this reason, we ensure full compliance with the latest data protection legislation and will protect this information as far as we are able, unless we are otherwise required to disclose it by law (for example, through a law enforcement agency, the police or a Court Order).
As you navigate through our website, we may also retain certain information which is capable of being passively collected (i.e. certain data which can be obtained without you actively providing the information to us). This type of information typically includes data such as IP addresses, cookies, internet tags, navigational data collection and so on. However, this type of data does not constitute ‘identifiable information’ for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 2018. We may, however, use certain information – such as your IP address – to diagnose any problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, administer and/or improve our website. This helps to ensure that we give you the best possible customer experience when viewing and/or utilising our website.
Our use of other third party websites …
We do not monitor, control, or endorse the privacy practices of any third parties and we therefore encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of every website you visit or third party service provider that you deal with and to contact them if you have any questions about their respective privacy policies and practices.
